Gould expected the Red Cross and other aid efforts would provide what is called a critical incident stress debriefing -- a time for rescue workers to talk about what's happened and how they are coping with the trauma.
However, after 9/11, Gould said he coped with the stress by talking to many friends and family members.
"The rescuer's family, I think, it's a huge thing to help. I know that cell phone coverage is pretty much down in Haiti," said Gould. "But the support they can give is a huge asset."
